9/11 mastermind Khalid Mohammed 'should not be executed', say relatives of victims

New York, Jan 28 (ANI): September 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, and four other terror suspects should not be executed for their crimes, relatives of two of their victims have said.

Loreen Sellitto and Phyllis Rodriguez each lost a son when their workplace at Cantor Fitzgerald was destroyed along with the World Trade Center's south tower.

According to Sellitto, execution would be "too good" for the quintet, and they should rather spend their lives behind the bars, the New York Daily News reports.

Rodriguez has a different reason for fighting the capital charges against KSM and his cronies.

According to the paper, she believes the military court and the death penalty are violations of human rights. "

Rodriguez is certainly not alone in her views, but she and her husband Orlando are the most outspoken among 9/11 relatives, the paper said.

After the terror attacks, they publicly urged then-President George W. Bush not to respond militarily, the paper added. (ANI)
